INVITATION

The 14th Siberian Conference SIBCON–2019 aims to offer opportunities to learn and to share information on the latest advances in communications, electron devices, and control systems. It will be held in Tomsk, Russian Federation, on April 18–20, 2019 based on Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics. The conference is organized by the IEEE units in Siberia and National Instruments Rus R&D on a regular basis in order to promote interdisciplinary discussion and interaction among scientists and engineers with an emphasis on the IEEE membership. While the scientific program is expected to create stimulating professional interaction, the magic of Tomsk, hot spring atmosphere and wealth of historic wooden architecture promise a pleasant and memorable stay.

The SIBCON International Conference is a forum to bring together business people, researchers, scientists, and industry professionals to discuss innovative ideas and diverse topics on next generation of comms technologies and control. Using this forum, researchers and practitioners can exchange issues, challenges, and new technologies and solutions. The SIBCON aims at attracting both researchers from academic and industrial institutions and practitioners from industry. Researchers, practitioners and distinguished speakers are invited to submit a paper or to make proposals of original research speeches addressing business and technical issues, challenges, solutions, and technologies in building applications, complete solutions and services. All papers will be peer-reviewed by the members of the Scientific Program Committee.

TOMSK, one of the oldest Siberian towns, was founded in 1604 on the high upper bank of the Tom River. It is a historical city, with a present population of 620,000. In the past it was the fortress and the town of people in state service, the provincial center of the vast Siberian land, and a merchant town. Over the course of two centuries the Moscow-Siberian road has affected the formation of the original architectural-historical look of Tomsk. The quiet side-streets of our town capture you with the mysterious music of ancient wood and stone, with the delicate ligature of carved decor.

Since its foundation in the 17th century, the city has been growing and developing, moving forward. Tomsk has not lost its unique features and traditions in the process of its development. As any historic city, our homeland is rich with interesting people and events, it harbors a lot of mysteries and small secrets. In other words, we have many things to show and to tell.

Tomsk is one of the most beautiful cities in Russia. Houses decorated with wooden lace, gold-plated church domes – the beauty of the streets earns for Tomsk its reputation as a historical center of Siberia. However, despite its venerable age, Tomsk appears youthful thanks to the students and young scientists. Nowadays, there are ten academic institutes and six universities in Tomsk. Modern Tomsk is a large, generally acknowledged Russian educational and research center. Tomsk takes first place in Russia for the number of students and scholars. Higher education beyond the Urals started in Tomsk. Tomsk-based experts have made a valuable contribution in the advancement of electronics, precision mechanical engineering and metal working, up-to-date building industries, and automatization production.

As one of the oldest cities in Siberia, Tomsk offers many architectural monuments to the past, as well as distinctive wooden houses decorated by wood-carving. There exist numerous historical, cultural and architectural landmarks drawing visitor's attention. Like a magnet it attracts the best people of each epoch. More about Tomsk may be learned at Web site www.tomsk.net, starina.tomsk.ru, and tomskhistory.lib.tomsk.ru where virtual excursion proposed.

We sincerely hope SIBCON help you feel the special atmosphere of our home city, get acquainted with its sights, places of historical interest, and learn about the oldest city in Siberia. We believe, you will share our love for Tomsk.

Discover Tomsk, a modern renaissance city where history and wooden houses meets innovation and culture.
